Plans and motives

I know, my God, that you examine our hearts and rejoice when you find integrity there. You know I have done all this with good motives…I Chr. 29:17a

When things don’t turn out the way we plan, God knows what we were trying to do and why we were trying to do it. He strengthen us so that we can maintain our integrity in the face of disappointment or loss. I would rather fail in a way that causes God to rejoice than succeed in a way that offends God.

Lord, examine my motives as well as my plans.
